Letters To The President: Wrong on Rights

As written to the President via whitehouse.gov

Dear Mr. President.

I am extremely disappointed to learn that you are continuing the Bush-era policy wherein detainees at Bagram Airfield cannot use U.S. courts to challenge their detention. It amounts to the U.S. military holding people without charges, repeatedly interrogating them without any means to contact an attorney. We cannot create prisons outside the law. I have a lot of faith in you and your administration to create change, but this is very discouraging. These kinds of policies hurt our standing in the world. I strongly encourage you to reject Former President Bush's plociies. I hope you reconsider your position.

Respectfull Yours.
Owen Panettieri
